    Can you elaborate? If you don't have another sim and just AT&T, how can you verify it's unlock without restoring?
    Google sim lock status and input your imei and it will give you all your phones info.

    Do those sites actually report the status of the phone or simply indicate whether or not the IMEI entered is in the database as unlocked? The difference is whether it's possible to unlock that phone/IMEI or if it's actually been unlocked.

    The sites that I checked on listed my device as an AT&T iPhone 5 that has already been unlocked. Not sure if this answers your question or not, Fausty.

    Unlocked yesterday for $12.99, couple dollars more than the rest, but it worked. Right after restore " Congrats your iphone is unlocked" Now what? Wait for the others to provide nano sim? What the hell it will be OK. Just idea of knowing I can take the iPhone 5 with me. SATISFYING ENOUGH.
    I'm with you on this one. It's a small price to pay for the satisfaction of know owning an iPhone 5 that is factory unlocked and can be used on another GSM carrier if we need at a later time.

    I have a verizon iPhone 5 and the link says mine is locked. Didn't it come unlocked out of the box?
    Not sure where you are checking, however, if you do have a Verizon iPhone 5, it is definitely unlocked already.

    I just bought AT&T iPhone 5 @ no-commitment price (ie full price) and I went to this web site someone had mention earlier (IMEI Checker | DevMK iPhone Blog) and it shows my IMEI as UNLOCKED. I didn't restore or anything. I haven't tried putting in another GSM sim card to test it yet. I will report back when I do.

    Is that site legit? I just checked mine and it said unlocked. I haven't done anything yet to unlock it and bought it for subsidized price.

    I am not sure. That site was posted by someone else a couple pages back. I will know for sure in a week when I get T-Mobile nano sim to test it out.

    I just restore my phone and I got the message that my phone is unlock! So I read that this is permanent?

    If you do a restore in iTunes, it will tell you if your phone is unlocked. But there are other methods without doing a restore. 💻

    Can any of these guys unlock Canadian iPhones? I got an iPhone 5 on TELUS that I wouldn't mind getting unlocked.

    FCC made it mandatory for all Verizon iPhone 5's to be unlocked.
